April Darchicourt wanted to do something to celebrate the care her daughter received at the Kennedy Krieger Institute. "They did not treat us like an assembly line," she said, recalling that her daughter, Kara, would be 15 this year had she survived cerebral palsy. She died of a seizure in 1999. Each year, Darchicourt, an Edgemere-area homemaker who describes herself as a "domestic goddess," and her husband, Tom, who runs a home improvement business, organize hundreds of motorcyclists for a charity event that brings some excitement to the children being treated at Kennedy Krieger.

I live in Nottingham, and last November I traveled to Italy. My husband and I are lucky enough each year to take a trip around our anniversary, just the two of us, and this time, we went to Italy. One of our favorite spots was the Cinque Terre, a collection of villages along the Italian coast. Unfortunately we were only there for one day, but in that time we hiked through four of the five towns. This photo shows the town of Manarola. We loved how all the houses were perched on the cliff.
